Helen: So, what’s for lunch?
Gabe: Since you were nice enough to spend your Saturday morning helping me out, I’ll make sandwiches for lunch. I know it doesn’t sound like much, but I make a mean sandwich.
Helen: That sounds good, but you’re not going to use those cold cuts, are you?
Gabe: I was. Why?
Helen: Those are processed meats made with additives and a lot of sodium – definitely not what you’d want to put into your body.
Gabe: I eat these kinds of cold cuts all the time.
Helen: You shouldn’t if you don’t want to eat a lot saturated fat.
Gabe: Okay, how about if I make us salads.
Helen: Not with those greens. Unless they’re organic, they’re full of pesticides and chemicals.
Gabe: [sighs] All right, how about if I make us healthy smoothies?
Helen: Only if you use only fresh fruit. Bottled juices are full of high-fructose corn syrup. Yuck!
Gabe: I’ve got a great idea.
Gabe: You pick the restaurant and I’ll buy you lunch.
Helen: I don’t want to put you to any trouble.
Gabe: It’s no trouble at all. [Said under his breath] I’d do anything to get you out of my kitchen!
